I have a one day working week next week thanks to a public holiday Monday then I'm off to Sydney next week on Wednesday for5 days with S and I can't wait!
We are going down for a wedding (its a Friday wedding in Manly) but as they are mostly S' friends, I'm more excited about seeing my great aunt (she's 91 and still lives alone in Drummoyne flitting to the Melbourne Cup & whatnot) and my darling bestie B who relocated to Sydney a few years ago and we never see each other anymore (that said, he was up for my wedding in March this year).
B works in advertising and marketing so is quite the 'man about town' or in Plum Sykes' words, if he was a girl he would be a 'champagne bubble'. Moving forward, B and I have been chatting on email for the past few weeks and I have roped him in to the following:
Cocktails atThe Ivy
Champagne at the Opera Bar (Sunday afternoon)
Shopping at Zara and the City Westfield - although he has warned me that Zara is overrated and not as good as OS
and I am adding Sunday brunch at the DJs foodhall to this list (with Bellinis of course)
S parents will also be in town and we are planning to spend some time playing tourist with them on the Saturday I think.. maybe Chinatown (cause the GC doesn't have one), The Rocks or Cockle Bay Wharf for afternoon drinks ... suggestions here are very welcome :)
Lovelies, do you have any Sydney suggestions for me? We are staying in the City and I have been there many many times so am happy to skip the Bondi, Paddington, Manly thing but am open to new activities... I also need somewhere to watch the SoO (somewhere that is Blues friendly although that shouldn't be too hard in Blues territory).
Also, has anyone eaten at Blue Plate Grill in Neutral Bay? I read reviews and it sounds right up S' alley.
